Formation Environmental provides complete site characterization services to address regulatory, legal, scientific, and remediation objectives. Site characterization is a core service that supports our focus on developing innovative and technically sound strategies. Formation applies multi-disciplinary expertise to identify relevant data needs; design focused data collection programs; collect field and laboratory data; manage complex data and other site information; and analyze, interpret, and explain findings. Our state-of-the-art GIS tools, including geospatial and geostatstical analytics, support data compilation, presentation, and analysis efforts.
Many site characterization projects come with complex histories of past site uses, previous investigations, and response actions. In such cases, characterization tasks may rely on existing data, involve new data collection, or both. Formation is committed to making the best use of existing data, whenever possible, following a thorough evaluation of the quality, reliability, and appropriate uses of such information.
